Is more usage in 2016 taking place on the desktop, or on mobile devices?
Statistics indicate that in total digital media time, mobile usage now far outpaces desktop (51% vs. 42%). However, the data is heavily skewed by e-mail and social media, which takes up much mobile data usage time. If you look at the percentage of people actually shopping and looking for services online, desktop searches still outpace the mobile platform.
This is likely due to the fact that many traditional services – automotive, travel, financial services – have relied primarily on their desktop-geared websites to date. However, with the increasing use of all size screens, any company looking to stay ahead of the competition needs to immediately consider switching their website to a responsive design.
Responsive web design (RWD) is aimed at creating sites that provide optimal viewing and interaction experiences. The goal is easy reading, intuitive navigation and a minimum of re-sizing, panning, and scrolling – whether using a desktop computer monitor, tablet or mobile phone.
